This man likes to write scripts for some of the most addictive drugs. For weight loss, he pushes stimulants. From multi-page "personality" surveys, he'll say you're depressed and pushes antidepressants. He'll also tell you that you need more sleep, so he'll push benzos. Then when you reach tolerance and start have withdrawal symptoms, he'll start treating your drug tolerances and withdrawal symptoms with even more drugs. How is this person is still able to practice medicine? Here is someone who addicts patients to bad drugs, then has the nerve to rail about the problem of drug addiction in the US. He participates in creating addicts, then he profits by "treating addiction." Stay away!

This is s very smart doctor and he has helped a lot of people / he is brief but always spot on / they do not explain the tests but this is part of diagnosing you. I knew my issues and he filled me in and even discovered more - very quickly. To me this is efficient and correct treatment and I am now 100% again after years of illness

Only useful service was blood tests/results. Resented wasting my time and money completing a personality test for their convenience alone. Result of a brain parameter test asked to do was never given. Seen by a PA. Saw Braverman 5 mins. Odd-ball human. Should stick to writing books.

Considering the number of detailed negative complaints, it is puzzling that New York's licensing authorities have not done anything to stop Braverman. I know they have received complaints, but perhaps not enough. It would help if people who feel he has abused them complained to the licensing board;

Drove my wife in for an appt. Forty five minutes after she began the grueling ten hour initial consultation visit, Braverman passed me by in the waiting room and asked what I was waiting for. Seconds later another MD in scrubs came out to greet me and "just explain what we do here". I responded " I get it, it's slow, he sent you out fishing in between patients". I agreed to four hundred dollars in blood work for the heck of it. A ridicules 50 page questionnaire that I just breezed through for laughs and twenty minutes later I'm in the billing office with a diagnosis of hypothyroidism and he also told me I was a sociopath. Ten thousand to start would begin the "healing" practice. Problem is that I am a Registered Psychiatric Nurse and I know a little bit about these things. What? Sociopath? Also told me I was diabetic although my A1c levels were on the high but within range, even though I had a raisin bagel an hour before walking in and Chinese food last night. My BP was really high 190/100, an obvious concern, which HE NEVER ADDRESSED. But he did try to sell me a hundred supplements and charge me 10,000. Oh boy is this a pushy sales oriented money machine. He might be a genius, maybe, but he sure is hungry and his staff reflects it. Take 2 teaspoons of Apple cider vinegar everyday and maintain regularity, and you will outlive all your enemies as I have. I'm 64 years old and on no meds, and this guy is telling me I'm crazy and diabetic. I did cut out the salt and my BP is about average in three weeks. Think about it first

Horrible person! Read the Assurance 14-222 by the NY OAG Health Bureau before you try this doctor. This guy has been scamming people for over 20 years; had his license suspending by the NJ BME and PA MB before incorporating into Path Medical so he could avoid disciplinary action. Even though I didn't want the garbage he tried to sell me, he got my poor old mother to pay for a contract and then won't refund her money even though she rescinded in writing in 72 hours and didn't use any of the services. He used the forms required to fill out in the 50 page medical history they give you to claim "tests" were provided and since the services were used she won't get the refund! They don't do any medical evaluations or give test results after they administer them, and if you keep asking, they print something from a computer and charge you $400 as a separate fee in addition to what you paid for the tests. His staff seems to know the whole thing is a croc, but I caught them arguing over me like sales people competing for territory, so I think they get paid on a commission basis or something like that. I thought it was strange that a PA would say thing like, "I need her to fill this out because it's part of my thing," and then the other PA to say, "This is just not right, this is my thing. ("But my thing isn't done yet") No, you just can't do that. This is just....(shakes head)"

I was a patient at the path clinic several years ago. After I arrived from Long Island for my appointment with Dr Braverman called in from NJ to say that he couldn't make the appointment. He prescribed effexor for me, a toxic drug that I discontinued taking because of severe side effects. It did not help me. The handling of billing by clinic staff was chaotic. Overall not a good experience.

Dr Braverman and his team are experts at one thing and one thing only - dishonestly taking your money and lots of it! And even if they agree to refund you for services they never planned on providing, Dr Braverman will lie and do everything he can to evade honoring this agreement. This has happened to so many people that its shocking there is not a class action lawsuit against this guy and wonder why the New York State's Medical Board has done nothing to investigate his highly questionable business practices and lack of ethics. The Better Business Bureau has given an "F" rating to PATH Medical because it failed to respond to four complaints made in 2012 or 2013 about its financial practices. Three of the complaints stated that PATH Medical had failed to refund payments made in advance for services that had been canceled or otherwise not received. The RateMD site has reviews from many people who are highly dissatisfied with their experience at his office. Stay well away from Dr Braverman! http://www.quackwatch.com/11Ind/braverman/overview.html
